The pictures do not do justice to this place - it is beyond expectation! Amangiri is extraordinary and well worth the splurge. Attention to detail is redefined - nothing is overlooked. We never thought our visit would land us in the middle of a pandemic and are grateful the staff adhered to a very high standard to ensure everyone was safe. We stayed in a dessert pool suite and were thrilled with the accommodations. It was so nice to come back from a 10 mile hike through Buckskin Gulch or a Via Ferrata Voodoo climb to jump in our own pool. The weather was in the upper 80's and mid 50's at night - October is one of the best times to come here. The views are glorious and expansive and the sky deck was an added bonus for watching the stars at night. There are only 4 small plunge pool suites - the two dessert view pool suites are bigger and more private as they are not next to each other like the two Mesa view pool suites. The views are more expansive and farther away (not much) to the main facilities. This provided a beautiful walk to explore the resort daily when heading to the restaurant, main pool or spa. Food, beverages, staff and dining experience compared to a 5 star restaurant. The spa was amazing with a variety of unique services to enhance the experience. The fitness studio, Pilates and yoga classes were world class - very special studio with views of the surrounding strata. The concierge and housekeeping staff were always one step ahead - we never asked for a thing or wait long, they were attentive and kept things moving seamlessly. Our excursions were handled expertly by our fabulous guide Mark from Adventure Partners - they handle many of the hikes and tours around the property. Be sure to add to your list the use of one of the resort's high end BMW convertibles for a quick tour of nearby Horseshoe Bend and end your stay with a private sunset dining experience in the dessert before you leave. You will walk away feeling like you left the planet and experienced a taste of heaven. Well done Amangiri! Stay safe, stay open and keep up this amazing experience! Looking forward to seeing you again!

Such a wonderful place! The concierge was terrific helping us prepare for our trip and with anything we needed during our visit. We stayed in the One Bedroom Sunset Pavilion with views of the mesa AND the canyon-gorgeous. We wanted to keep our distance from others because of covid, and the management was very accommodating. We had one dinner in our lovely pavilion-the table was set with the beautiful dishes from the dining room. Another meal we arrived at the beginning of dinner time and had the table of our choice. The food was high quality and delicious for all the meals. We did the group hike one morning and a private hike arranged by Amangiri another morning. Both super. I'd highly recommend Amangiri for anyone who wants a very special and luxurious vacation.

Before going to Amangiri, I had read several reviews that were critical of the food and service, so I'm happy to say that both were excellent during our stay. I was actually dreading the food and it was great. And even though we're in the middle of a Covid situation, the resort manages to pull through and provide excellent, if slightly limited, options. But before I say anything more, please note: AMANGIRI IS ON PACIFIC TIME!!! You'll avoid a lot of travel headaches if you know this and don't assume that the resort, even if it's in Utah, is on Mountain time. Oy, the mess this caused us. The next big issue is, the cost. This place is unbelievably expensive unless you are in the upper echelons of the wealthy. Why? I think the answer is, because it can be. It's $3500 a night to bask in the unique desert and mesa tops of this beautiful area, so no, of course it's not "worth it." But if you love the desert light and it's a really special occasion and you can save up to afford it, it's worth coming. At least, one time. The spa services are excellent. (Special shout-out here to Missy, who was fantastic in introducing my skeptical husband to yoga). Horseback rides take you out to see amazing petroglyphs and jack-rabbits and sediments used by a local painter. There are ancient Navajo sites nearby. We couldn't really afford the helicopter rides and other stuff, but even just sitting outdoors is incredibly soul-feeding. And the guest shop has Tylenol if you get carried away in any way, horse or Hendricks. Inevitably, there were a few minor glitches. One day the room wasn't made up. Ants found a dead fly on our porch and had a feast, yuck. Alcoholic drinks are very expensive. It's a long drive here if you can't rent a jet. They could really use some chap-stick in the rooms, or your lips will dry and fall off. The worst for us was the Saturday night drum-banging and shrieking at the restaurant. Please. Don't pretend we are immersed in Navajo culture, we know it's tourist nonsense. Just let us eat dinner. I also wish they would shave 30% off all the prices. Then it would be expensive, but not insane. More people might sign up for the special guided trips, or order a cocktail. Also--and this is significant--the trail map is terrible! You can try to follow it and you'll get totally lost; there are markers that don't appear on the map, and vice versa. And we are talking desert hikes. A little bit scary. We took West Coyote and it was impossible to find or follow. I hope this review is useful to both guests and the hotel administration. We valued our time here but can see even greater things for Amangiri in the future. And did I mention, chap-stick?

Amangiri is like stepping on another planet with all the luxury comforts of a 5 star hotel. The scenery is unbelievable and all around you in this remote resort - especially at the pool! But what makes this place soooo special is the STAFF. Less than 40 rooms and it's the place "where everyone knows your name". We have never stayed at a resort or on a cruise where we were ALWAYS greeted by happy, personable and attentive staff. I would ask where they find them, but I know - it's from all over the world that they come to work at an Aman property. Watch for Sean, Evan and Dino in particular to make your stay here fantastic.

We are planning a visit and can't get anyone to answer the phone or respond to an email to book spa services. I stayed here the first year it opened and so hope our upcoming experiences will not disappoint.
